Hmmm..if she was close to due time, she should not have been travelling; but I'm glad things turned out well for her and the baby. Good job to BWIA's s flight crew.

The baby would be entitled to apply for U.S. citizenship, said Shawn Saucier, a spokesman for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

Why? Wasn't the baby born to a Trinitarian mother on a BWIA airplane? Does the airspace counts in this case?

I thought it didn't. To my knowlege only the flag of the vessel counts as for nationality so, the baby would be from where ever the airline is from.
nice and spacious airports in need of new airlines and flights... GUA or FRS anyone?... anyone at all?

She's a Trinidadian-born US resident, which makes the baby eligible for US citizenship. I don't think the baby was born in Piarco's airspace, as the plane would simply divert or return to POS.

Wonder what would be enterd in the "Place of Birth" column.

There are some forms in which you can choose 'In the Air' for the place of birth column. Sounds like a perfect fit.

Wow, what a unique form of IFE. With events like this, who needs PTVs at every seat and AVOD systems, the airlines can save a fortune!

I am just being silly, I do hope the mom and child are doing well. Its rather unusual, airline travel is generally restricted in the last months of pregnancy to avoid situations like this.

Airspace does count. Only in international airspace does the flag of the carrier come into play.

Itwas born 10 minutes before landing at JFK according to the article.
